So Foo Fighters have a new song out - with a new album in February to follow. That, it hopefully something in which to look forward.
Dave Grohl - excellent drummer and a seemingly good and funny guy - said their soon-to- be new disk, Medicine at Midnight, was inspired by Bowie's Let's Dance disk.
If so - this could be fun.
There are less subtle hints of Bowie in their new song, "Shame Shame".
It has the drums (not his) of the Niles Rogers produced Let's Dance. ...ditto with his Chic partner, Bernard Edward's production of the Power Station.
But the repeat of "shame shame" and it's chord progression and notes reflect a much earlier Bowie. Yet there is still enough of Foo Fighters on here to make it them, not a Bowie knock-off. Again, he inspired them - it's not an homage.
I'm enjoying it.
